 Remember these things while making online UPI - Payments

1. Keep Your UPI App Updated

To keep yourself secure from cyber criminals, you should keep updating your UPI app from time to time. To enhance cyber security, most of the companies provide new features with every update. In such cases, always keep the UPI app updated.

2. Never enter a PIN to receive payments

In any UPI app, the user is not required to enter his/her PIN to receive money. So, be careful if someone is asking you to enter your PIN while sending money don't share it otherwise you can lose your money.

3. Beware of Fraud Calls

Cybercriminals not only try to steal money from people by sending them links, but they also directly call users and ask them for their password, PIN etc. Remember, banks do not ask for such details over the call. So you should not fall prey to any such calls. Don't be greedy for such a fake little bit offers and cashback.

4. Do not click on any type of link and do not enter PIN

These days people get attractive offers on mail and WhatsApp, especially during the festive season. Peoples get excited when he/she got a link of offers, they never think once minute that why someone giving me this offers. So please before clicking any link regarding offers or may be any other links just know full details then click on them. Otherwise such links ask you to enter your PIN and other details to receive the 'Gift' or 'Cashback' and when you entered these details they transfer all the money from your accounts. So be careful with such links and should not open them.

5. Create Strong Passwords

Usually we all set our password too easy or we choose such a password that is linked to our daily life( i.e. Name, Date of Birth etc.). So please avoid to doing this because such password are easily guess by fraudsters. So be aware and set a strong PIN while registering for the UPI App services. Create a pin that no one can guess easily. UPI PIN usually consists of either four digits or six digits.
